Forests for Multiple Tradeoffs : Compromising on Timber , Carbon , and Biodiversity Objectives

In this paper, we develop a multiple objective, decision-making model that focuses on forest policies that simultaneously achieve carbon uptake and maintenance of ecosystem diversity objectives. Two forest carbon measures are used – a nominal (undiscounted) net carbon uptake as a proxy for long-term carbon sequestration and discounted net carbon uptake that… CONTINUE READING
